anthracites storm instabilities

CB Avalanche Center 2019-20 Observations

Location: Kebler Pass Area
Date of Observation: 01/13/2020
Name: MR
Subject: anthracites storm instabilities
Aspect: North, North East
Elevation: 11,000

Avalanches: See photo. Looked to be skier triggered. On the bottom steep roll skier’s right at the bottom of big chute where it tends to do that. R1D1 soft storm slab. The storm snow in the middle of big chute had also run when we got there, presumably triggered by the first skiers as well. No other propagating avalanches observed but plenty of cracking and stuffing in the storm snow.

Weather: Blowing, snowing, and cold all day.
